you captured the beauty!

Behind The Lens

Location
This image was captured in Scotland, in Outer Hebrides
Time
I expected to have a sunset here but the weather was not collaborating, so I tried again in the morning and I was lucky enough to capture this situation
Lighting
The light was rising from right side, just perfect to light up a bit the foreground and the fast-moving clouds in from of me
Equipment
I captured this image with a Nikon D810 and a ZEISS Distagon T* 18mm f/3.5 ZF.2. I also used my NiSi ND64 and NiSi GND 3 stop Hard filters, together with a NiSi Landscape Polarizer.
Inspiration
I'm a seascape photographer and I travel as much as I can to capture beautiful sunrises and sunsets in remote location of our beautiful planet.
Editing
As I'm using filters, I don't need much post-processing. In any case, here I used Adobe Lightroom and Nik Collection by DxO. I also run classes to teach how to get these results, you can find more on my website.
In my camera bag
I love to travel light so only a camera body (in this case Nikon D810 and now a D850) and just a couple of prime lenses, a Zeiss Distagon 18mm and 21mm. Then my filter bag is of course mandatory, like a sturdy tripod and some extra accessories like a remote shutter cable.
Feedback
Enjoy Nature and every weather situation you can experience!
